Friday night, I made 84 "Z"s out of blue felt.
Because Max asked me to!
Every year I do someTHEME different for Christmas decorations.
One year, it was all kid decorations, one year was my huge Santa collection, one year was all the nutcracker collection, one year was all snow village.....
Last year, I was so tired and busy, I did not use our newer tree, but our first simple tree and hardly any other decorations.
It was beautiful.
This year, Max asked if we could do my simple tree AND the bigger one.
So last minute planning for a theme began at 8pm last night.
And a $30 late night trip to Target later, we were ready for:
Blue Blue Christmaszzzzz
I got up early on my only day of rest-Saturday- and began the prep.
I noted that I might not have room for an Electric Christmas....
I tried to stay calm as I moved furniture, dusted, mopped, swept, bit my tongue so it would not give a lashing, did Lamaze breathing to keep the anger at bay, and picked up atleast 2,000 nerf bullets
( I know what the boys WONT be getting in their stockings)
With MAX's creative eye and physical help, our first tree was complete!
Z for Ziegenhorn
Blue Christmas nod to Elvis
Blue lights and silver tinsel to celebrate a great Tiger Football season.....
Including the Memphis snuggie as a tree skirt!
Once Max completed his masterpiece, I began to erect my simple Christmas and surrounded it with Christmas past themes.
We only decorate the living room and dining room....
And the kitchen window- where most of time is spent washing dishes....
And Max's desk....
